You can read more about everything Elgato has announced below. You can also find many links to the Elgato website if you are interested in any of these products.

Elgato Stream Deck MK.2

Elgato Stream Deck is an incredibly popular device that features up to 15 programmable buttons that streamers and content creators can use for unlimited uses. The Stream Deck is an invaluable tool for many users, and now it’s updated with an MK.2.

Featuring the same 15 programmable buttons and customizable icons, the Stream Deck MK.2 offers interchangeable faceplates, removable stand and now uses a versatile and standardized USB Type-C port for connectivity. Now your Stream Deck is even more personal and versatile. Stream Deck MK.2 is available now, along with several faceplate choices, starting at $150.

Elgato face camera

Elgato already offers the Elgato Multi Mount to make it easy to use your camera of choice as a high-quality facecam, but now Elgato wants to make the process as painless as possible with its own official solution. The Elgato Facecam is a 1080p/60 FPS camera that aims to deliver the perfect experience for streamers with built-in memory for settings, easy setup and mounting, and an included privacy filter.

The Elgato Facecam also doesn’t include built-in microphones, so you don’t have to worry about interference. The Facecam is all about “plug-and-play” convenience. Much like the Stream Deck MK.2, the Elgato Facecam is already available for purchase directly from Elgato and will cost $200. The Elgato Facecam may have a decent chance of becoming one of the best PC webcams.

Elgato Wave XLR

The Wave XLR is a microphone interface and digital mixer, and aims to pair with your existing Elgato mic to give you extra power and control you wouldn’t otherwise have. It features anti-distortion, mic mute button, integration with Elgato’s Wave Link mixing software, customizable faceplates, multi-function control dial, USB Type-C connectivity and a way to connect your microphone and monitoring headphones.

The Wave XLR is available now for $160 and also has a handful of customizable faceplates available for purchase. More faceplates will come in the future.

Elgato Wave Mic Arm and Wave Mic Arm LP

Another product to pair with your microphone, the Elgato Wave Mic Boom aims to make it as easy as possible to position your mic exactly the way you want it and move it when you need it. There are two variations of the Wave Mic Arm to choose from. The standard variant is larger but is designed to be as flexible as possible with tons of control, included counterweights for heavier pickups, and more. The LP variant isn’t as flexible, but it’s designed to be “low profile” and blend into the background without taking up much space.

Both Mic Arm variants are fully adjustable, easy and secure to install, and support a wide variety of mics, including the best microphones for streaming. The Elgato Wave Mic Arm is available now for $100, and the Wave Mic Arm LP is the same price.

Other announcements

Elgato decided to storm today with several major product announcements, but they also sprinkled in some smaller ones. Elgato also announced the Master Mount S, or a more advanced version of their regular mount, the Elgato Facecam Wall Mount, and the Light Strip Extension Kit, which does exactly what you expect it to do.
